Mornin gents.

Was 28* when I left for work. Sky is mostly clear, and the temp is going to 38* with winds 15 to 25 out of the NW.

The warm, rain, freeze cycle is killing our roads. There's one road I drive to work that is more pot holes than road.

Years ago I killed a beautiful 12 point buck. It was going to take some work to get it to the house, so I got Mrs. BF to help me.  Of course Tracer, and Travis went with us. Tracer got to the buck before I did and claimed it as her own. We were dragging the thing up the hill with the tractor and Tracer would be latched onto a hind quarter tugging on it and I'd have to chase her off of it.
I don't think Trina and Trooper would be any better.

Then there was the time that Travis snatched a cleaned squirrel out of a friend's hands and downed it before you could say stop.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Good morning all!

Gorgeous sunny day here in London, not a cloud in the sky. Frosty start at 33 and on the way to 58F.

Nearly Friday and hunting this weekend!

Scrummy

Mornin’ all, another 10” or more with winds @ 20 West. Lots of drifting. Shoveled the sidewalk and couldn’t find the steps it was drifted so badly. Will wait till daylight to tackle the driveway and by the looks of the radar this heavy band of snow should be finally gone. It was snowing when I hit the sack and hasn’t stopped yet.

Mornin gents.

Overcast and mild temps with gusty winds. Freezing rain and snow on the way Friday night, followed by locust and plague.

Here is one reason I say all this global warming/climate change is B.S.. Weather occurs in cycles. Around here big snows (12"-24") occur about 10-12 years apart. You may have 2-3 years in a row that will have a moderate to big snows or 2 in each year. In those years we usually get some very cold temps. Most of the time we get a few days of light to moderate snow and the temps other than a few days aren't that bad.
Back in 1977 and 78 we had 2 really bad winters. 1977 had a 12-14" snow and really cold temps for weeks. The Ohio all but froze over. Something that hadn't happened since the early 1900s. In 1978 we had a repeat of sorts, 20 some inches in one snow and 12 in another one 6 weeks later. It was really cold the whole time, but not as cold as 1977. We had snow on the ground into April that year.
Everybody thought it was global cooling, and the city bought all kinds of snow removal equipment and 4WD vehicles and ambulances. All that equipment was worn out or gone by the next big snow in 1994.
In the meantime in the late 80s we had 2 or 3 summers in a row with summer droughts and temps stayed in the 90s and low 100s for weeks and weeks. That's when global warming became the new phrase. Of course the big snow and record cold in 1994 didn't make a dent in the man made global warming/climate change propaganda.
Is climate change occuring? Yep, always has and always will, with and without man.Can man stop it? Sure, when a man can hold up his hand and stop the ocean waves.

Nice weather till.....you guessed it,  Saturday!  Loco
Then more snow.  It's gonna be next year before I get to see my granddaughter again.... 


G, I traded in the Altima back in June of 2014.  Alitma's CVT trany was acting up and only 900 miles left on warranty.  i went back to a Camry.  I got lucky as Toyota had a special pricing on their XLE versions.  I got it cheaper than I could get a base mode; Camry.... Hippie  that was 85K miles ago.... Bucky

Mornin gents.

The weather is typical Ky. winter weather, with a chance of light snow tonight. Not time to panic, but running in circles in woe is mandated.

My toilet has decided to piss me off again. I have a big surprise in store for it.
